Graduates and tutors of the Charitable Foundation PELICAN decided not to part for the New Year holidays but to go together on a journey to the Vladimir region.
Today a group of orphanage graduates and volunteers went to the exhibition of animated paintings of Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel at the ARTPLAY Design Center. The grotesque world of medieval artists seemed to us more exciting than frightening. We even wanted to learn more about secret messages enciphered in canvas of the “titular professor of horrors” Bosch and his successor Bruegel!
In November, December and January children from boarding school №31 and Family Care Assistance Center SPUTNIK, as well as orphanage graduates, had a wonderful opportunity to get familiar with the whole display of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts http://www.arts-museum.ru/?lang=en.
Company “Lanit” and “Here and Now” Charitable Foundation together with the Pushkin Museum prepared a special programme for kids living in orphanages.
A cartoon about a green elephant was created by the whole studio. Idea and the lyrics belong to Aleksandr Shishov, our old volunteer, friend, poet and musician. The pictures were drawn at the studio art classes by children and adults from different orphanages (see the long list of artists in the titles). Editing, dubbing – everything was done by our students and volunteers. Thank you to everyone who contributed their hands, heads and voices to the project!
On 21-25 February our traditional winter camp at the Sorochany resort near Moscow took place. 10 children from the Family Care Assistance Center “SPUTNIK” spent with us several days full of sports, games and friendship. Everyone mastered mountain skis or snowboards, but some mastered both.
